So… Here I’m studying electrodynamics for today’s exam.
What about it?
Well, this is about magnetostatics, electric and magnetic field on matter… you know, all that stuff on polarization, magnetization, hundred of different names for the constants which appear on your problem, and even Laplace equation, diff. eq. on power series, and of course (one must never forget it) Boundary Conditions.
Through the day I expect to make a review on the concepts, and (if I can) a formulas book.
Oh!, I finally get how to pass to the covariant formulation of the electrodynamics in a smooth way. Sooner I’ll put something on my Math and Phys page, but if you are in a hurry, just check the second volume of Feynman’s lectures on physics. I’ll go mostly through that.
Some nice books I’ve studied from are:
- Feynman. Lectures on Physics. Vol. 2
- Reitz and Milford. Foundations of electromagnetic theory.
- Griffiths. Introduction to electrodynamics.
- Lèvy-Leblond and Butoli. La physique en questions: Electricité et magnétisme.
- Alonso and Finn. Campos y Ondas.
- Purcell. Berkeley Series Vol. 2
- Jackson. Classical Electrodynamics. (In my humble opinion, It’s an excellent book of reference, but is not a good book for studying… Nothing personal. I know one should work it down at least once in a live time)
Enjoy life… Cya.
